Rules and policies

Rules and policies are in place to make sure your child remains safe and well at school.

Attendance and absences

Students must attend school regularly so they can achieve their educational best and increase their career and life options.

In NSW, all children from the age of 6 are legally required to attend school or be registered for home schooling through the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA). All students must complete Year 10, or its equivalent.

Application for Extended Leave - Travel

Regular attendance at school is essential to assist students to maximise their full potential. With this considered, holidays and travel arrangements are encouraged to be taken during school holidays and not during term dates. If the decision is made to take considerable time off class, an Application for Extended Leave form must be filled out and approved by the Principal. These forms are available at the front office.
